Exploring the Lunar Surface Educator GuideProduct Type: Educator GuideAudience: EducatorsGrade Levels: 3-5Publication Year: 2013Subjects: Mathematics The lessons in this book use the 5E learning cycle to help students in grades 3-5 learn about the moon. Hands-on activities and mathematical concepts demonstrate size and proportion. The guide explains the moon's two orbital periods - sidereal and synodic. In the six lessons, students build an edible model of a spacecraft; perform experiments to understand buoyancy and density; use classification skills; use measurement to understand craters; and practice mathematics skills with lunar data.
Space Math @ NASAMathematics Grade 6 Chapter 1 - Dividing Multi-digit Whole Numbers [Click Here] - Students will learn about satellites that gather data about Earth systems through reading a NASA press release and viewing a NASA eClips video segment. Then students will practice dividing multi-digit numbers using satellite data related to Earths ozone layer. Featured NASA Missions: Aura Chapter 2 - Translating between Tables and Expressions [Click Here] - Students will learn about black holes through reading a NASA press release and viewing a NASA eClips video segment. Then students will use tables and mathematical expressions to compare black hole sizes and temperatures.
